A Trip To Afghanistan?

If it wasn't for the lack of civilization accompanied with a good chance of having your head lopped off, Afghanistan might make a enjoyable holiday destination. My buddy Ben sent me this CNN article that reveals the secret potential that grows in Afghanistan.
Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in Afghanistan have stumbled across an unexpected and potent enemy -- almost impenetrable forests of marijuana plants 10 feet tall.
"A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those [forests] did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," Hiller said dryly.
One soldier told him later: "Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana'."
Finally, some good news out of Afghanistan.
